The Exeter Theater Company was established to preserve and operate the historic Ioka Theater as a vital center for arts and culture. The vision: The historic Ioka Theater is the star of the Exeter area, a financially sustainable cultural center presenting a wide range of theater and arts programs that creates excitement, pride and support within our community.

The Exeter Theater Company will transform the empty building into an Art House theater featuring live music, theater, dance, comedy, independent and local films, and community programming. Our team of community members have created an updated design and renovation for the revived Art Deco theater. The new Ioka will look and feel historic, and will preserve the best of its original character, but will be renovated to meet current fire code and safety requirements. The Campaign for the Ioka has begun to purchase, restore and open the Ioka that will be a century old in 2015. Won’t you join us?
